From July to October, the great wildebeest migration fills the Masai Mara, as do the bulk of the Mara's annual travelers. But from November to June, the Masai Mara continues to brim over with an astonishing abundance of wildlife, along with fantastic opportunities for private walking safari, horseback safari, luxury mobile camping, and thrilling nighttime drives. On a 10-day safari outside of the migration months, the Masai Mara is as authentic and surreal as ever.
Nairobi – Overnight in the Colorful Capital
From your balcony at your first hotel, you will enjoy the juxtaposition of Nairobi as the city skyscrapers provide the backdrop to a savannah that is dotted with elephant trunks and giraffe necks. The wild landscape contrasts the urban core of the city, and as you are picked up from Nairobi International Airport, it is a short transfer to your hotel. This first evening is all about relaxing and preparing yourself for the safari adventure to come, and this property is ideally situated with vistas over Nairobi National Park, along with its proximity to Nairobi Wilson Airport for your early-morning flight to Ol Pejeta.
